– On his latest Bischoff on Wrestling podcast, Eric Bischoff discussed WWE’s reports that Braun Strowman will be out up to six months in contrast with a report from Wrestling Observer that Strowman will be back in July. Bischoff noted that in his opinion, it is fine for WWE to “work” the audience by spreading misinformation. You can listen to the full audio below.

“Is it ok to work an audience? Yes,” Bischoff said. “Is it ok to just come out and knowingly lie to them? Eh, hard to really delineate between a good work and a lie. Let’s look at what the product is. It’s not sports. People are not betting on it and if they are they shouldn’t be. It’s not a sport it’s a story, it’s fiction and in my opinion… is it ok to manipulate perception in order to achieve an ultimate goal within the context of this artform? My answer is a definitive HELL YES!”
